Altered Item not a card - recycling more stuff

Hi, this is the before I attacked it lol,
It was a empty shortbread tin,
I have decorated it quite plainly for a boy,
as they are so often forgotten or hard to do for.
I used a Mikey image from Charmed Crafts
and the paper was a 12 x 12 bit that I had used a bit of.
so this was in my scrap bag.
Here below is the results,
I even got hubby to put a slot in the metal lid to make it into a
money box.

this is another different item for my charity stall on the 5th n 6th Sept.
and I am entering it into the challenges over at
Dotties World - Altered Item
Truly Scrumptious - anything but a card

This makes me feel good when I can do things like this and save
what normally goes into the recycling bag.

Thanks for looking,
x X x
